    1. Rachel Ballon Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Writer's Portable Therapist: 25 Sessions to a Creativity Cure book, this is one of the most wanted Rachel Ballon author readers around the world.

    2. Your time is precious; don't waste it on this book. Ballon's advice, what little of it is actually useful, is no different than any other writing book, and it is filled with such patronizing cheerleading it made me sick. Ballon, as a writing psychotherapist, centers each chapter around a case study, which, due to patient confidentiality, is not really a case study by her own admission, but an amalgam of different clients. Because she allows herself creative license in relating these "case studie [...]

    3. I'm a writer. I have writer's block. Have had it for a year or so. According to this book, ALL of the problems I've run into stem from a crappy childhood.One thing, though -- I had a great childhood.All "25" solutions (I'll give you a hint; there's only 1: blame it on your childhood and free-write away all your problems!) are pretty worthless. I wish that's all it took!

    4. Okay, so I have had this overly busy, stressful thing going on for the past couple weeks and I bought this book a few months ago when I was going through the same thing and I wanted to write so bad but just could get the words out and this book (it really is portable--conveniantly small), in one of its sections ("I have nothing to say") it has really helped me to move past it a bit and actually CONSIDER that I DO have something to say. This isn't one that you read straight through--you just read [...]

    5. I found this book through Total Boox, which has an extensive collection of books for authors. At the time, just a few months ago, I was feeling totally blocked with my writing. I had several novels on hold. Never mind the short stories and story ideas. Multiple works ranging from 12,000 to 80,000 words sitting idle. I was bogged down in ghostwriting a memoir/novel for a paying client, and I had committed to co-editing a book on cutting edge digital publishing projects for a prestigious publisher [...]

    6. Okay, so I started out really loving this book. It had a good premise and I really liked the originality of it. I've never heard of a psychotherapist who specializes with writers, so I think Rachel Ballon is a one-of-a kind aid. However there were several things that made me question her approach. I feel that the writing sessions did help me immensely with getting words down. The time limit with the Fast Flow Writing method and the lack of a nagging internal editor are my favorite parts of the b [...]

    7. It started off alright, but eventually the advice became insulting, and her tone was really aggressive: stop making excuses, don't be a fatass, you don't run the world, etc. Even the business about Fast Flow Writing rubbed me the wrong way, because this is almost the exact same advice Julia Cameron gave decades ago called Morning Pages. Meh.

    8. Useful. I can read bits from this book over and over for quick bursts of inspiration to write.
